OWH Color Challenge ~ Set of Garden Collage cards


Years ago I sold my Stampin' UP! Garden Collage stamp set and have regretted it ever since. When we were in Albuquerque, NM recently I was browsing through eBay and found a great deal on it and another set.. so I snatched it up. It arrived this week and this morning I set out to make some cards using the OWH Color Challenge. I made all the cards the same.. except I colored the butterfly on each one a different color.
Pink
Blue
YellowPurpleOrangeAqua BlueRed
Here they all are again... I am so happy with how they turned out. Where the sentiment is was a bow on the first card I made.. I didn't like the looks of the bow so I took it off and added the sentiment to it and each of the others as well.
Supplies:
card stock: White, Black
ink: Memento black, assorted markers
accessories: Stampin' UP! black ribbon, large oval punch, label punch, Brads, Hole Punch and Dimensionals


thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

Pam, your cards are beautiful! Isn't it fun to change things up a bit by using the different colors? Love the stamp, I can see why you wanted to get another one. Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

Beautiful group of cards Pam! I have that set but don't use it too often because I never considered not coloring every little detail. Thanks for inspiring me to look at it in a new way.

I never would have bought this lovely set because I don't like coloring and there's certainly a lot of color. I love the idea of choosing one element and leaving the rest natural. Thanks for the inspiration.

I love what you did with that stamp. That set is one of my all time favorites, but I haven't used it in a long time. I'm digging it out and using your idea. Thanks!
